    I suggest not to get shot....It stings. Very fun though.

    It's not too bad getting shot. I certainly would recommend against it, though. We ended up playing for about 6 hours. Very fun. Not the best shot, though :/

    The quality of guns can differ quite a bit. Stinginess depends on the clothing worn and the velocity that the opponents gun shoots them. Did you play on a field or in the woods?

    I haven't in years. I was injured in the war and it makes physical activity a little difficult. Every once in a while when I get bored I surf the net and am always surprised some of the equipment they have now.

    OIF I'm not old enough for Grenada.

    I picked up paintball through some friends that used to have off days on Wednesday and Thursday. Paintball and golf were the only things around for them to do during the day. I worked nights at UPS at the time and school during the day. I used to play golf with them and I eventually got talked into the paintball thing and found it pretty enjoyable. Now it seems that all I do is sit in a feeder truck.
